Notes sourced from Southcorp.
Wynns Coonawarra Estate was the first winery to be established in the Coonawarra, by John Riddoch in 1896. The winery is located on the world famous strip of 'Terra Rossa' soil that produces fruit of an exceptionally high quality.
First produced in 1981, Wynns Coonawarra Estate Chardonnay demonstrates that Coonawarra, like Bordeaux, produces fine whites as well as fine reds. This wine has consistently upheld a superior value-for-money reputation.
As a young wine it typically displays melon, fig and citrus fruit flavours finely balanced with vanillin oak. The style has been refined since the early 1990s and the impact of oak-derived flavours has been reduced. The 2002 is a beautifully balanced Chardonnay that will age well during cellaring.
Vintage Conditions: Overall, the combination of planned yield reduction techniques and a dry growing season meant that the 2002 fruit was of an exceptionally high quality. In addition, the fruit was perfect to make into an intensely aromatic and flavoursome 2002 Chardonnay.
Maturation: Six months in new and one-year-old French oak barriques and hogsheads.
Tasting Notes: Pale straw colour with a green tinge. Fresh white peach aromas with hints of butterscotch and smoky oak. Lifted fruit with nutty undertones. A soft and generous palate with creamy oak-enhanced fruit and crisp acidity. A fruit driven style, flavours are in the stone fruit spectrum with hints of citrus. Integrated oak contributes to, rather than dominates, the texture of the wine. Peak Drinking: Now – 2005.
